Tucked away in the Annie's Landing section of Ellenbrook Estate this lovely nature playground is set in natural bush. Access is off Banrock Drive and parking is available off Inglis Avenue. You can plan a longer play here as there are toilets, barbecues, picnic benches and a drink fountain.
This playspace has been designed for different age groups through the use of “play pockets”, connected by meandering pathways. The natural bush surrounds enhance the earthy tones of the play equipment.
There is a spider net for climbing and a giant bird's nest swing. The double flying fox zip line is sure to keep the kids busy for hours!
They can clamber up the climbing walls, scramble across the rope bridge, slide down the slide, run through the tunnel and start the loop all over again!
Another fabulous slide, modelled around a tree trunk, lets kids choose between steps, ladders or the tree trunk to get to the top.
Younger children have their own separate playspace which includes a large spinning roundabout, bucket swings, sand play, outdoor musical instruments and an interactive climbing structure featuring a slide and a tunnel. This playspace is situated away from where the older children play but the little stream that provides water play runs through the grove of trees behind it, so watch your little ones carefully.
A running stream runs through the playground and allows for water play (water conditions permitting). There are also paved paths for the kids to race around on bikes and scooters. Ellenbrook also has an extensive shared use path network which can be accessed on Banrock Drive if you want to take the kids for a longer walk/ride before stopping for a play.
Across the stream you can venture to Brockman Park with it's pretty lake and large grassy areas, ideal for a picnic, or if your kids are more into kicking a ball around you can head through the bush to adjoining Chardonnay Oval.
A note of caution however is that this park seems to be the haunt for local teenagers and on our visit we found several glass bottles scattered around and broken glass in the toddler area. Let's hope the City of Swan address this problem rapidly as it would be a shame if this prevents kids using this amazing playground!
